Geriatrics & Elder Care
Geriatric Doctor in Cumming and Alpharetta, GA
Board certified in geriatric medicine, Dr. Suresh Gudur provides comprehensive elder care for the multifaceted medical needs of elderly and aging patients. As patients age, they may become more susceptible to illness and injury. In some cases, conditions may overlap, creating complicated diagnostic and treatment processes.
At Internal Medicine & Geriatric Professionals, Dr. Gudur is trained to diagnose, treat, and manage the multiple health concerns of older adults, including:
- Urinary incontinence
- Sexual dysfunction
- Impaired vision
- Hearing loss
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- High Cholesterol
- Heart disease
- Mental health issues:
- Memory problems:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Use of multiple medications
- Gait instability and balance disorders
With patience and compassion, Dr. Gudur focuses on preserving a high quality of life for our elderly patients by helping them avoid or manage chronic disease and live independently for as long as possible. During each office visit, our geriatric physician will perform:
- Vision and hearing evaluations
- Risk assessments for falls, instability, and immobility
- Evaluations for impaired intellect, memory, and Alzheimer’s
- Medication management counseling
But when chronic disease occurs, Dr. Gudur's goal is to manage the condition and prevent it from turning into a lengthy hospital stay. He will develop an individualized care plan for each patient, referring to specialists as needed and coordinating care among all specialty care providers involved.
If a patient is hospitalized, Dr. Gudur will follow up in the hospital as well as ensure that you or your loved one receives the appropriate care and support after discharge, including referrals to home care services or assisted living facilities as needed.
